Nooteboom's latest innovation, the extreme low (790 mm) MANOOVR Semitrailer with a payload of 12 tonne/axleline
15 May 2017
On the 11th and 12th of May 2017, Nooteboom Trailers celebrated its 135 years of being in business as well as 50 years employment of Dick Nooteboom, who is still going strong as company representative and Arch image.
An interesting program was set up, consisting of a Company tour, showing the factory as well as the new conservation and painting shops, Nooteboom's test centre, display of second hand as well as new trailers and demonstrations of various types of trailers.
On Friday the 12th of May 2017, a series of interesting Workshops were presented by amongst others by: Esta, Liebherr, Mammoet and Pon.

A demonstration of the newly developed Tycan lightweight Dyneema® lashing chain for securing crane boom sections
Tycan®, the trade name for the revolutionary lashing chain, developed by Load Solutions of Norway and DSM in the Netherlands, was extensively tested by Mammoet during the past 2 years and Certified by DNVGL.
The beauty of this light weight ultra strong fiber lashing chain is that it is almost 7 x lighter then an equivalent steel grade lashing chain and can be applied the same way as steel lashing chains.
Main advantages being:
- light and easily to be handled
- no damage to painted surface, so extremely suitable for wind turbine parts and painted machinery
- soft surface, but with a min. breakload (MBL) of 20 Tonnes and a securing load of 10 Tonnes
- no noise when applying on steel cargo
- can be applied the same way as steel chains
Recently also a steel lifting chain has been developed and Certified.
See detailed pictures below:
Steel lashing chains, easily damage painted surfaces like boom sections and the trailer bed, which is not the case when applying Tycan® lashing chains
Paint damage to trailer bed due to steel lashing chains.
Polyester lashing belts are easily damaged and have more stretch then the Tycan® lashing chains
Old trailers can be renovated by Nooteboom and will be as new!
A very interesting presentation was given by Mr. Hans-Dieter Willim of Liebherr about risks involved when lifting Wind Turbine components to ever increasing heights.
